    Update 5pm Sat: I am having some trouble getting Battlefield 4 to work with the AMD gpu's. I have removed the R9 290s and I am putting the Titan's back in to do all the testing I can with them. Mainly Unigine Heaven and Metro2033.

    Here are the AMD Gpu's doing Metro2033 and Unigine Heaven(Extreme).

    (Plural on the 290xs) What GAMING benchmarks would you wanna see? 3dmark 2013, BF4, ....

    To Do;

    3dMark 2013 Advanced
    BF4
    DayZ
    Unigine Heaven
    Skyrim
    Batman(one of the newish titles)
    ....more?

    I'd watch Flash Gordon in 4K while leaving the GPU's to crunch for WCG!

    I would like to see the same benches that W1zzard does in his reviews, then we would have better insight to 4k and performance.

    can 2 titans or 2 290x even drive 4k comfortably?

    I was thinking that was the point of running the benchmarks (and testing the games) in the first place.

    None just take the PC and run away to mexico or a country where electricity is cheap and you can play all day long. :)
    On the serious side I would bench games like battlefield 4, COD Ghosts, Grid 2 and Metro 2033

    So after spending a few hours trying to troubleshoot why Battlefield 4 doesn't want to work, I rebooted my system to lower my overclocks thinking this might stabilize things a bit, and help the game run. WRONG, the gpu's then decided to Black screen of death on me, the both of them. Elphidia dims ftl. Back to the Egg they go.

    No Crysis (1,2 or 3)? I'm disappointed.

    No, two 290Xs or Titans can drive a 4K panel decently enough, I know because I have rigs with both dual cards configurations, and my coworker let me try his new $3.5K Asus 4K monitor on my dual Titans and 290Xs rigs, he was actually looking to replace his dual 680s and wanted to try both Nvidia and AMD solutions before deciding which one to get, both rigs were good enough to run all games we tried maxed out with no problems and no issues to report :)

    Actually, he's trying to convince me to replace my center 27" display for a 4K display and keep the other two 1080p monitors, but I prefer to wait until prices are more palatable and 120Hz monitors become available (his was a 60Hz monitor I believe)

    Good luck benching your rigs :rockout:

    I must've missed the sarcasm, that's one limitation of written language as opposed to real human interaction :p

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/267130/ let's see if star swarm changes across resolutions or if it really is entirely cpu limited, be sure to try mantle on/off & that other option that boosts nvidia (off by default)

    also... doesnt any game with true supersampling have the same result? 1920x1080 with 2xSS = 4k so 1080p people can test that way

    There are some serious, serious problems with the 14.2 beta driver, and MST(multi-stream transport). It basically doesn't work on the new driver. The cable I have been using that came with the monitor, is also flaky as shit.

    I don't have Ghosts, not sure how I'd benchmark some of these games, lest having to play the first 10 minutes of a level or something to that effect. I do have fraps for measuring things. Unfortunately, my time with the Titans is drawing to a close. There new owner will be receiving them later this week if all goes as planned.

    Once AMD gets a WHQL version of 14.2 with mantle support and MST support, I'll see what I can do about benchmarking BF4 with/without mantle. I managed to fix BF4 Sunday after figuring out that MST just completely fails on the 14.2 drivers. It will work if I plugin to a 1080p monitor via HDMI though, so limited testing....
